O'Brien hoping for another shot at English T20

“I’d love to be back there again this season, but I’ve just got to wait and see what happens.”

KEVIN O’BRIEN IS keeping his options open on a return to England when the new season of the Friends Life t20 gets underway later this summer.

The Railway Union all-rounder made his mark during a stint with Gloucestershire last year, but is currently without a county for the new season which begins on 12 June.

Older brother Niall is on the books at Northamptonshire and said this week that he is still trying to persuade management to give an O’Brien double act a shot this time around.

Another stint in a county set-up would help improve his game, the younger O’Brien told, and he won’t be closing the door on any interested parties.

“Obviously I was over last year and I’d love to be over again with any team. If that does come about, it would be fantastic but if not, it’s not the end of the world.

“I played well last year at Gloucestershire and my game improved a lot playing under John Bracewell.

I’d love to be back there again this season, but I’ve just got to wait and see what happens.

In the meantime, O’Brien is getting ready for his annual Easter cricket camp in Railway Union, which takes place next week from 10-12 April.
